Dreaming of tying the knot or planning to tie it soon? Here are Sivani's choices for the most romantic wedding spots to say "I do."
1. Napa, California. If a sophisticated wedding with a natural element is your ideal, look no further than Napa. California's celebrated wine country, Located just Northeast of San Francisco, boasts soft, rolling hills and luscious fields of grapevines. Other than the natural beauty that will surround you on your most magical day, there is the advantage of being able to make great wine and food a central element of your wedding celebration.
Your guests will surely appreciate it, and so will you.
2. Sanibel and Captiva Islands, Florida. These two Gulf-side islands off Florida's coast are laidback, classic Floridian locales in which to say your vows. Sanibel features tons of white-sand beach locations for your ceremony and reception, as well as an old lighthouse that will serve as a wonderful backdrop for your wedding photos.
Captiva's South Seas Island Resort offers full resort services and incredible wedding night accommodations. Both islands are home to upscale restaurants with fantastic seafood dishes and ocean views that make for beautiful receptions.
3. Acadia National Park, Maine. Adventurous couples who appreciate the outdoors are well suited to be married in this breathtaking swath of land on Maine's Northeastern coast. A unique early morning ceremony on Cadillac mountain, one of the first places on the North American continent to see the sun each day, is very romantic and a symbol for new beginnings. Travel here for an autumn wedding full of vibrant and rich foliage.
4. New York, NY. Energetic, flashy, urban, and urbane, New York is lovely in its way. Endless options are available to couples seeking a romantic setting, from intimate ceremonies in historic buildings to family affairs in hotel ballrooms and even Central park itself. Not to mention the opportunity to fly directly from just outside the city to almost anywhere in the world you've planned your honeymoon.
